The Technological area of Computational Thinking was introduced to the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa for primary and secondary schools and kura in 2018. This course is designed to equip participants to teach relevant Computational Thinking topics to students in schools and kura, from primary school to NCEA. Each of the main topics will be critically examined in terms of pedagogical and subject knowledge while at the same time developing teachers' understanding of theoretical perspectives of Computational Thinking. Participants will develop through investigating theories and practices in Digital Technologies education and industry. A key component is an individual research project to develop, implement and critically evaluate a resource to develop students’ computational thinking. The course does not cover teaching of computer programming or learning to program a computer.
